Introduction

Based on the second-generation 2006 Sprinter, the 2013 van adds some much needed comfort and refinement to Mercedes-Benz's big van. Admittedly, it still lags behind its rivals on value, but the Sprinter remains one of the best used vans on the market.

The four-cylinder 2.1-litre CDI diesel is the mainstay of the engine range. Entry-level models get 95PS but the most popular model is the 130PS version, plus there's the top 3.0-litre engine with 190PS. The standard gearbox remains the six-speed manual or there's the optional 7G-Tronic Plus automatic.

The Sprinter is renowned as one of the best handling vans on the market, with light and responsive steering that makes it easy to navigate around town or guide the van into a tight parking space. However, there's no front-wheel drive option, which means the loading height is signifcantly higher in the Sprinter than its rivals. 

As well as the new look, the 2013 changes added improved upholstery and seat coverings plus a thicker steering wheel and new air vents. The gear lever has been redesigned and there's a new generation radio that includes Bluetooth and a Becker Map Pilot navigation system. These are small changes but they add up to make the Sprinter feel that bit more modern.

There are also five new safety systems in the new Sprinter including a new Crosswind Assist system which comes as standard. If there's a sudden and strong gust of wind, the ESP system will use the brakes to keep the Sprinter from veering out its lane.
